Default Lee Pearson (one of the most musical drummers out there)

"From Broadway to Jazz, Hip-Hop and R&B, Lee Pearson is constantly refining his nest with his unique approach to the drums, while maintaining the classic vocabulary of percussion. Lee Pearson has been featured on many notable jazz and fusion recordings, including, two with the legendary Hank Jones which also makes Mr. Lee Pearson the last drummer to ever record with the Great Hank Jones, he's also record with the legendary group Spyro Gyra, David Murray and the World Saxophone Quartet, Hamiett Blueit and Baritone Nation just to name a few. Lee is currently recording his first solo album, highlighting his new nest and unique sound as he stretches for greater rhythmic heights and deeper musical depths.

Lee Pearson's singular percussive style has led him to the bandstand with some of the world's greatest pacesetters in Jazz and Hip Hop. In addition to touring with his own band, Lee has also performed with Hank Jones, Kenny Barron, Ron Carter, Roy Hargrove, Dr. Lonnie Liston Smith, Spyro Gyra, Roy Ayers, Lonnie Listen Smith, Jean Carn, Bobbi Humphreys, Ronnie Laws, Jon Lucien, Wayne Henderson of the jazz crusaders, David Murray, John Hicks, Erykah Badu, R&B singer Bilal and the tonight show band with Jay leno - just to name a few. He also did a world tour with Savion Glover's 4 tony award-winning broadway show, Bring in Da' Noise Bring in Da' Funk from 2002-2003. His relationship with these musical giants has encouraged him to step out on his own and perfect his unique sound. To God Be The Glory"

One of the most musical drummers out there, i think his big talent is wasted with Chris Botti.

with Spyro Gyra:

I love his playing. Had the pleasure of catching him live and meeting him after the show.
